Go Buggy for the Weekend

It's Friday, and it's time for a new Stampin' for the Weekend challenge. Yeah! This week we want to see "Bugs and Butterflies" adorning your creations.  

This card card could have been complete without stamping but this is "Stampin' for the Weekend".so I stamped a tiny butterfly randomly over the striped dp.   So even if you're not much of a stamper, just a little bit will do. 

Clean and simple cards have got my attention lately.  This is not a style that comes easily to me but using lots of flowers and embellishments is not easy for me either.  It's the story of my life, I wind up somewhere in the middle.  Is there a name for that style?  I hope it isn't "wishy-washy".

Here's the deets:
stamp - Stampin' Up "Winged things"
ink - Versafine "Toffee"
paper - The Paper Cut "Sno-Cone" cs; Bazzill "Glow" cs; My Mind's Eye "Be Amazing" dp
miscellaneous - Cuttlebug birthday embossing folder; Martha Stewart butterfly stickers; ribbon;  embroidery floss; charm

Here's the challenges:
Stampin' for the Weekend #11 - "Bugs and Butterflies"
Ribbon Carousel RCC56 - Birthday Bash
Catch the Bug - Anything Goes
Crazy for Challenges C4C139 - Add some Butterflies
Whoopsie Daisy - Summer Colors
Simon Says Stamp and Show  - Some Texture
Southern Girls #46 - Things with Wings
Case Study #45 - inspiration card
